Dwight: Makin’ It Rain

We found this on the Library’s website, and it was too good not to share. Dwight Eisenhower wasn’t around all that much during his five-year presidency of the university, but he seems pretty chuffed to be at Columbia here, circa 1953.

What joie de vivre!

    @Nothing has changed In fifty years a picture like this of PrezBo will surface with the same comment, “wasn’t around all that much”

    @Damn As awesome as this is, I’m still disappointed that this isn’t a Dwight Schrute-related post.

  • Alum says:

    @Alum I once saw this photo with a caption that said it was taken right after Ike announced he was running for president.
